It was a good book although I enjoyed some of the other Dr Seuss books better
Mostly listened to this on CD (also read some sections of the book when I had to be away from the CD player) and I gotta say Coben's books are just fantastic in audio. Scott Brick reads them, generally, and does a brilliant job. Coben's very good on paper, but brilliant read aloud. I'd say the same of the books of Robert B. Parker and Dean Koontz. All excellent drive-time reading.
Well-researched book that shows the interdependence of bar culture and homophile groups in laying the groundwork for a gay rights movement based on civil rights.
As a fan of this genre, it's hard for me to say this but really, this book is self-indulgent. It's the tone of the author that I can't get past and it may be my mood. I may revisit this some day and appreciate it more but for my current mood, I can't get past what I find to be navel-gazing. Normally I adore reading memoirs, or creative non-fiction; this time around, it feels like it's all a bit much to me.
I really liked the first mystery and the history involved. The chess references made the plot a bit dense at times, but I enjoyed the connections and the intellect of how the second mystery was crafted and revealed.
